Egyptian Heroes Review
It’s not news when we say we feel that Net Entertainment might just have the edge over their competitors for creating impressive-looking online slots. The theme of ancient Egypt isn’t something never before attempted, but it’s a subject that, if approached right, can be very rewarding creatively. All of previous two sentences are true statements in the instance of Egyptian Heroes, a game visually stunning as it’s diverse in betting terms…and with one unique extra nowhere else to be found.
Onto the gist, then! Here we deal with five reels, twenty paylines slot game with very smooth and slick gameplay and an outstanding potential for winnings that will make playing this game seem really worthwhile. And in case you’re not in it for the money, the sole entertainment value is high, as well.
The usual batch of numbers and letters a low-value symbols. Those of higher value are four different Egyptian deities plus a pharaoh, whereas scatter and wild symbols are a sphinx/sarcophagus head and a pyramid, respectively.
So, what are the visuals like, you ask? NetEnt never fails in the graphics department – and in a very bizarre way, the blend of very modern design details and the feel the game provides mixed with ancient imagery works miracles here! Colors are pastel-like, except a few light/magic features that separate the characters who animate beautifully when a winning combo is hit.
There are quite a bit of those, we will present them gradually from least to most awesome. The Free Spins feature is no news, landing more than three scatters anywhere will grant access to 10, 15 or 20 spins. What makes this one a bit different, though, is that throughout it there is an expanded wild on the center reel that stays put, making this that much lucrative to spinner.
So yeah, we mentioned the expanding wilds, but what is it? You may remember it from some other NetEnt’s games: when wild symbol lands on a second, third or fourth reel, it will expand to cover them entirely (prompting sharp animation) which increases the win by some measure.
And finally, the deal maker: Golden Line Bet Multipliers. A novelty and a unique feature to this slot. On each spin you will notice a faint golden line on different paylines. If you are so lucky that the winning combo ends on that very line, a big win beckons and a multiplier between 1x and 5x will do its work.
All in all, with Egyptian Heroes we are witnessing yet another NetEnt triumph, even though the subject theme is a risky one given that this could have either been a complete flop or “just another” among the Egyptian themed slots. Luckily for them (and for us), creative bonus solutions and well-restrained but tasteful graphics make this game anything but.
